Songwriters Hall of Fame
Music artists like Dallas Austin, Tom T. Hall, John Prine will become the inductees of the Songwriters Hall of Fame. In addition, Missy Elliot is the first African American female rapper to be inducted. The Songwriter Hall of Fame is a platform that celebrates the legacy of the great songwriters whose work has made an impact on the culture. Missy has paved the way into her career as an American rapper, songwriter, and dancer that has made hits for years. She has written and contributed vocals for artists like Destiny’s Child, Mary J. Blige, Diddy, Aaliyah, Gerald Levert, and many more notable artists.
The Songwriters Hall of Fame described Missy as “one of the most significant female artists in contemporary music history”. She is also the only female to have all six of her albums to go platinum.
On Twitter, Missy writes:
I want to CONGRATULATE all the AMAZING songwriters who have been inducted into the 2019 Song Writers Hall of Fame…also those who were nominated because their body of work is AMAZING. I AM SO HUMBLY GRATEFUL to now be inducted also. I [heart] you all #SHOF2019.”
